Your business is likely to have sensitive data that must be protected from unauthorised users. In the event of a breach in control, it could result in a catastrophic destruction of these precious assets. Access control is a concept that is designed to act as a gatekeeper. It also defines the parameters for handling sensitive material. However, as organizations grow and change, the previous methods for handling data might not be appropriate or acceptable. This could result in sensitive data being accidentally released to uninvolved users within or outside of the company.

Inadequate control can cause the loss of data from the first party, which includes employee and customer information. A breach like this could expose your company’s data to costly regulatory penalties and lawsuits. It could also undermine your customers’ and clients confidence.

Managing access is both an technological and organizational process. To ensure controlled access to confidential information, the proper balance between policies, processes and technologies is required. These are crucial to ensure your organization adheres to standards and regulations in the industry, maintains its business agility and retains the trust of both clients and customers.

For instance, you should, ensure that your physical security procedures are effective. This requires employees to keep documents, thumb drives and backups of personal data in locked cabinets, and to notify security personnel about any visitors to your premises. It is also important to establish a “need-to-know” for all access. This includes requiring employees to use passwords, two-factor authentication, and to review their privileges regularly.
